Valour Gains Approval to Extend Distribution of Single Digital Assets from Top 75 to Top 125
TORONTO, May 2, 2022 /CNW/ - DeFi Technologies Inc. (the "Company" or "DeFi Technologies") (NEO: DEFI) (GR: RMJR) (OTCQB: DEFTF), a technology company bridging the gap between traditional capital markets and decentralized finance, announced today that Valour Inc. ("Valour"), its wholly owned subsidiary and a pioneer in digital asset exchange traded products ("ETPs"), has received approval to extend its distribution from the Top 75 single digital assets by market capitalisation to the Top 125.
The approval from Finansinspektionen, the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority ("SFSA"), supplements Valour's base prospectus and will enable Valour to distribute ETPs across the Swedish and EU markets involving the Top 125 single digital assets.
The criteria for the Top 125 are based on data regarding market capitalisation and price per unit in USD as published on coinmarketcap.com.
"With this extension we are opening the door for our clients to access more digital assets and a greater range of innovative technologies. Demand for our ETPs has been tremendous in the first months of 2022 and we're pleased to be able to bring our clients increased diversity with ease and in a cost-effective way," said Tommy Fransson, CEO of Valour. "We see this as a natural development as we continue to develop our products and make digital asset investment exposure secure and accessible."
Valour offers fully hedged digital asset ETPs with low to zero management fees, with product listings across four European exchanges. Valour's existing product range includes Valour Uniswap (UNI), Cardano (ADA), Polkadot (DOT), Solana (SOL), Avalanche (AVAX) and Terra Luna (LUNA) ETPs – as well as Valour's flagship Bitcoin Zero and Valour Ethereum Zero products, the first fully hedged, passive investment product with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) as underlyings which are completely fee-free, with competitors charging up to 2.5% in management fees.
